Yep, John and I have had discussions over cigars covering such topics as the impracticality of getting a hovercraft made of buoyant foam to submerge like a submarine (on purpose) and other zany topics. This is fun for some people, bringing out the inner child to play as they say.

NOTE: Video of actual craft in link above.

I'm sure someone laughed when the idea was first proposed...............always one in the crowd.

Toyota GR Super Sport Concept is the TS050's prettier, friendlier cousin
https://www.autoblog.com/2018/01/12/toyota-gr-super-sport-concept/





Quote:
Under the curvy bodywork is a chassis and powertrain that Toyota says "is composed of mostly the same main parts" as the company's World Endurance Championship (WEC) hybrid-power TS050 race car. That would also be the same race car that came painfully close to winning the 24 Hours of Le Mans two years ago.

My wife had a Yaris, it didn't look anything like that.

In case you have no idea what this car is, we’ll start by telling you that it was designed by the Aria Group, a California-based design and fabrication company, as an homage to GM’s late designer, Ed Taylor, also known as Fast Eddy.

Classic cartoon Wacky Races is rebooted
https://tvtonight.com.au/2017/03/classic-cartoon-wacky-races-is-rebooted.html

Quote:
Classic 1960s animation Wacky Races has been rebooted by Turner Broadcasting.

The original Hanna-Barbera series, inspired by the 1965 film The Great Race, saw colourful duos in wild road rallies across the US, employing all kinds of weapons and tricks to win a car race. Amongst the racers were Dastardly and Muttley, Penelope Pitstop, the Slag Brothers and Professor Pat Pending. It ran for just 17 episodes but lived on in syndication.

A brand new version will revive several much-loved characters, and unveil new ones, on Boomerang in August.
